King County Executive Dow Constantine today announced his proposal for the 2020 Strategic Climate Action Plan, which includes cutting greenhouse gas emissions countywide in half by the end of the decade, a stronger focus on climate justice, and preparing the region for climate impacts.

“Climate change is impacting King County today, deepening inequities and intensifying natural hazards – flooding, wildfires, extreme heat – that put people, our economy, and our environment at risk,” said Executive Constantine. 
“We surpassed many of our goals from the current Strategic Climate Action Plan by listening to experts, basing decisions on science, embracing innovation, and forging strong partnerships. 
"This next plan builds on our momentum, operating at a region-wide scale with a stronger commitment to climate justice.”

The 2020 Strategic Climate Action Plan is a five-year blueprint for county climate action, integrating climate change into all areas of county operations and its work with all 39 cities, partners, communities, and residents.

How arrogant. This guy actually believes he has the power to manipulate the climate. Is he God?

How does allowing our city's mature tree canopy to be decimated by WSDOT and by developers fit into the regional strategy? Removing all trees to prevent forest fires doesn't sound like much of a plan to me.
